"The Black Rose"

While I was typing my last entry, Marilyn turned on the movie "The Black Rose." It's based on the book by the same name.

That book? Mom gave it to me to read when I was a teen. It was a favorite of hers, and I ended up loving it, too. Seeing the movie makes me think of Mom in a fond way -- and the things we shared.

Mom and I didn't always get along, but it's funny how I tend to forget that now that she's gone. As I've said before, Marilyn and I look back and see the good in our past -- and avoid dwelling on the negative or bad. I think that makes us happier people, for sure.

Anyway, just had to share. Like the rest of the family, Mom loved to read. I'm so glad that both Mom and Dad gave their love of reading to me! It's certainly something I'm very THANKFUL for!

This time of year it's always nice to list things I'm thankful for. But don't get me wrong -- I'm THANKFUL for things every single day of my life. I never forget how blessed I am!

Thinking about you, Mommy! I wonder what you're reading in heaven... (???) I could give you some good suggestions. (smile)
